Rummy-nose tetras

I was reading another thread where the OP indicated that rummy-nose tetras are hard to find. I was curious so I googled and it looks like they just have a huge die off rate and are hard to find. This surprised me because EVERYONE sells them here and mine have been crazy and energetic (and healthy) since day one.

So what is everyone else's experience? Are they hard to find? Hard to find *healthy*?

I live in Germany, so maybe it's different in the states.

I live in Florida USA and the rummynose I just got are very healthy and very energetic. My lfs only had 3 so I ordered 10 and in 4 days they called me saying the truck just dropped them off. They order small fish by the dozen and since they were still in there origional bag and pond water they gave me the 2 extra free. But anyways back to the origional point yes there healthy they were eating only an hour and a half after I put them in my tank. So I would say there not as bad as what you have heard.

I have 7 (originally ten), but they are healthy and energetic after 6 months in my tank! Also one of my favorite fish to watch. Not a single health issue.

Yeah, mine will go alone all over the place a lot. But if they see me coming, they get in a tight school, like with an inch of each other. But half the time they're in a loose school.
